, insert the following, section, none of the funds made available by this act may be used to operate or maintain a -- mr. frelinghuysen: i would like a copy of the amendment, please. reserve a point of order until we have a chance to look it over. the chair: the gentleman reserves a point of order. the gentleman from massachusetts is recognized for five minutes. mr. markey: i thank you. current nuclear arsenal has significant overkill that is built into it. our country continues to spend moran more taxpayer money on nuclear weapons. and even though the president and the senate have already agreed to reduce the number of deployed nuclear weapons. even though there is a growing bipartisan consensus that the united states has an excessive number of nuclear weapons and that the united states spends far more than it needs for a nuclear deterrence and defense. and that is why i rise today to offer my amendment to reduce the number of deployed intercontinental ballistic nuclear missiles from 450 to 300. i believe that this is the soundest approach to both our national security and our econo
to the u.s. as children and this administration refuses to take steps to check whether their claims are true or not. thdepartment of homeland security has gone out of its way to avoid the enforcement of immigration laws. the department policy of not enforcing will cause innocent americans their jobs. as secretary, you like all americans also must be concerned about the recent disclosure of national secrets. the methods of intelligence we used to protect security must be kept secret. when the secrets leak, american lives are threatened. recent damaging leaks include operational details of the bin laden raid, specifics about how we conduct cybersecurity, and information about drone strikes. because of these, enemies now know how we will hunt them, which will make it more difficult. o met security depends on our ability to keep secrets from those who would attack our homeland. when they become public knowledge, people and our -- people and our national petition -- interests are in jeopardy. the ability to keep secrets depends on identifying causes and put a stop to them. that is why i
in chief he has the obligation to help us to solve this problem. i ask our colleagues to please support this legislation. bring transparency. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. van hollen: thank you, madam speaker. i listened carefully to what the chairman of the armed services committee said, and i didn't find much that i disagree with. we agree that we should replace the sequester. we agree that it's a mistake to create the kind of uncertainty that's out there, and obviously it has an impact not just in the defense sector, but also in all the other areas where our federal government has activities. but i would just say, and i want to make sure the chairman's on the floor now and has a chance to respond, he demonstrated some leadership on this issue. last fall, because he was asked this question, he was asked if he had to put together a plan that included some revenue, he said, yeah. i understand we got to make cuts, but i'd rather include some revenue than deep cuts to defense. in fact, what he said was,

of the techniques that the local authorities and federal authorities used to get around the booby traps, the meant went through the window. you saw at that video, them working through the video and they used robots to go inside instead of a person at risk and they used water not only to surround explosives, but used a water blast to short out that main control panel. ultimately, there was a point where the situation was deemed safe enough where people could go inside and gather up some of the rigged explosives. some of those were fireworks rigged specially picked up and put into a dump truck filled with sand and driven to a remote location south of aurora here. and ultimately, those fireworks, the other type of makeshift explosives, were destroyed in a controlled manner. and then the evidence started coming out of the apartment. about 8 p.m. local time people saw laptop computer and a hard drive come out of this apartment and that should prove to be a treasure trove in terms of evidence. diaries this guy wrote and plans laid out and investigators are hoping to find a path of that on the computer a

the bread basket, the section of the u.s. that feeds its share of the world, is burning up right now. the worst conditions they've seen since 1956. the governor of illinois says his state has never seen anything like this. he calls it a disaster of epic proportions. over one-third of the u.s. corn crop is in big trouble. over half the country is now affected. the problem is forecasters can't point to any rain on the way. it is where we begin this evening with nbc's kevin tibbles in walker, iowa tonight. kevin, good evening. >> reporter: brian, this is corn country and it is parched. these would usually be fully formed ears of corn by now. in this state they're pretty much worthless. and farmers at the grain elevator behind me in walker say they know their yields are going to be way down this year. many are starting to wonder whether they'll get any crop in at all. many farmers are throwing up their hands and looking to the heavens. >> we've done all we can do and it's up to the good lord to supply the water and send it on time. >> reporter: more than half the country, 55%, is now in

, settled within 20 miles of either the ohio or the lower mississippi river. they were used to farming in heavily wooded areas. and to them for me was a formula should be cut down trees and pull out hundreds of stumps before you did. the idea of going out into the vast grasslands and dropping about was something it was very difficult for them to get to my to read to the other problem of course they can find in southern illinois was they had no ability really get tired of to link it if you have done this after you cut down a forest, you know that the stumps after youtube land, at that point it was impossible to get clear title to incorporate these people were not just the they were basically squatters because the public lands had not been put on sold or were not put on sale until 1814. so other than a few people who held under agent grants, most of these before taking a risk and settling in a wilderness at that point. and ran the risk that therefore might at some point be bought out from under them by some better money speculative from the east. would enable the public lands to be surve

colleague, congressman gutierrez. thank you for joining us. >> thank you so much, chairman durbin, ranking member graham, for inviting me to testify here today. one of the proudest things i am from the state of illinois is being the senior senator in my state. i'm so happy and delighted to be with you here, senator durbin. i've traveled coast to coast to listen to immigrant stories. some of my colleagues have visited their cities that are here with me today. and immigrants everywhere tell me that they are regarded with suspicion. they tell me they are frequently treated differently, because of the way they look, sound, or spell their last name. in alabama, i met 20-year-old marta, a young woman raised in the u.s. one late afternoon while driving, she was pulled over. she was arrested for driving without a license and jailed so her status could be checked. because her u.s. citizen husband was not present, their alabama-born 2-year-old son was taken from the backseat of her car and turned over to state welfare agency. in south carolina, i meet gabino, who has been in the u.s. for nearly 13 y
such a wonderful job i think of giving us good information. researching those issues which are critical to the american people. and the important to the american people in making decisions on where they want to go. so neara, congratulations to you on your leadership as well. give my best to john poddesta who is out there in the netsdzer world doing something that we know is wonderful. i know tom is here my former colleague who is working with you. and your vice president who does such a wonderful job and such a good friend. good morning. good afternoon i guess i should say. as he prepared to take office president kennedy spoke to a nation troubled by anxiety over america's leadership in the world and uncertainty over whether future americans will inherit a strong and secure commay. he offered not -- economy. he offered not soothing words but a rousing appeal and to action. he spoke to his generation of americans and urged them not to shrink. to advance. today i would suggest we confront a similar anxiety but much greater global competition. it is i think therefore essential for us to se
bragging that he could do it, but it was also a warning to us. what if the next time that happens it's a larger utility or a group of smaller utilities around the country, maybe water, maybe electricity, maybe gas, and this time they're not just warning us or showing us our vulnerability but they're actually going to disrupt the flow of electricity or water to people who depend on it. that's -- that's the kind of crisis that we face and why it is so urgent that we deal with this. so let me come back to my dream. my goal here is that as we go on this week, we're able to submit a manager's amendment, but it's not just from the managers, senators collins, rockefeller, feinstein and i. we're joined by a much broader group and we form a broad bipartisan consensus here to protect our country from a terrible danger that is real, urgent and growing. mr. president, i always like to -- i was thinking about it again in this case -- think back in these moments. since i don't see anybody else on the floor, i will undulling myself and go back to a hot july day in philadelphia -- indulge myself and

[captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] from government was there in the wee hours of the morning when we were doing our regular jobs at the same time working to start our business. small businesses operate in a world of bottom lines washington knows very little about. unlike washington, they don't have the luxury to deficit spend, print more money or profess as, quote, spending cuts, lower than anticipated growth. when the president claimed the american system allowed the askess to thrive, he made a dangerous -- allowed the success to thrive, he made a dangerous error. it does not permit them to drive. that language suggests government is a benefactor possessing the authority to give or take the blessings of open commerce as it sees fit. no, government does not allow you to thrive. government, when it operates in its constitutional capacity, does not object -- obstruct your thriving. ask
on the attack against the president using really his own words instead of having to come up with a hurried vice presidential announcement. and, wolf, there are some tea leaves to read here. kelly aot said to be high on mitt romney's vice presidential search list, she is going to be appearing with mitt romney up in new hampshire tomorrow. the romney campaign announced that yesterday. wolf, i think it stands to reason that the campaign would not have announced this event, would not have said slooes going to be at this event up in new hampshire if they were going to somehow come out tomorrow and announce she's the vice presidential running mate. so i think that's an indication that perhaps this window before he goes to the olympics is closing and that the vice presidential announcement will come off the olympics are over, wolf. >> they haven't released his exact schedule yet. when he's going to be in london, israel, when he's heading back to the united states. he's going to poland as well. do we know any details about that? >> reporter: wolf, i can tell you right now that, yes, all three of those
illness is important. what we learned from this program could help us in other programs of diseases coming from iraq and afghanistan. if you get a chance to visit walter reed bethesda hospital see some very strange viruses and molds and funguses that are coming from places that we never expected to see but we're seeing them now. this research program could help another research program to deal with these deadly diseases that are affecting our troops in large numbers. and so while we already give $10 million in this bill, i am going to agree with mr. kucinich and agree to his amendment to add the additional money. mr. dicks: if the gentleman will yield? mr. young: i do. mr. dicks: this gulf war illness has been something that bothered me a great deal. it's a very difficult diagnosis on what was causing this, but i think an additional investment here is worthy and i think we should accept the amendment. i'm glad the chairman accepts it. mr. young: i thank the gentleman for his comments and thank mr. kucinich for offering the amendment and i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the q
to the statute of our speaker. -- stature of our speaker. let's take a few minutes to provide some useful historical context. to think back to the beginning not only of -- not of this century, but the last. the world today is transfixed by the phenomenon of rapid economic growth in a number of countries that are rapidly treating major powers in the world. of course, the biggest are china and india. some others that would look fairly large in comparison to greet carter -- powers in the past, such as vietnam, russia, indonesia, and brazil. they are becoming much bigger players in the world. 100 years ago, the rise of germany as a great power led to two at catastrophically destructive wars. that also spawned a number of other tragedies, such as nazism and bolshevism, which turned the 20th century, which had begun with a decade of great promise, into the bloodiest in history. we cannot afford to repeat that history with even more terrible weapons of the 21st century. the challenge of managing a merging towers has become, arguably, the major challenge of our time. not that we are short on chal
own in this race for the white house. jim acosta is joining us from boston right now. what's going on on this day as far as the republican presidential candidate, jim, is concerned? >> reporter: wolf, the back and forth in this campaign right now is all about four words the president said nearly a week ago, the words you didn't build that. the comment has the romney campaign building a new line of attack that is resonating with republicans. republicans hope it's a sign mitt romney is back in business. >> when the president said that, if you got a business, you didn't build it, come here and talk to brian. and you'll learn that in fact he did build this business. >> i take umbrage at the suggestion that people don't start and build businesses. >> now, i'm know some people that think what the president said was just a gaffe. it wasn't a gaffe. it was instead his ideology. >> reporter: on a day he was expected to stay behind closed doors, he was at a truck repair company near his boston headquarters to keep hammering a comment made by the president last friday. >> if you got a busines
. for those of us who have had the pleasure and the honor of coming to know ryan well, this latest story is not at all surprising. it actually is quite in keeping with the character and actions of this superb, decent, selfless man, a man who i would call without question or hesitation the most excellent foreign service officer and one of the finest public servants i have ever known. for the past 41 years, ever since he was a junior diplomat serving in prerevolution iran, ryan crocker has consistently answered the call to serve in the most challenging, the most difficult but also the most important posts in the world. they were the places as it turned out where america needed ryan crocker the most, and he has always served with distinction. he was a young officer in lebanon when our embassy was bombed. ryan crocker helped to pull his colleagues from the rubble and then got back to work. he was one of the first civilians into afghanistan and iraq after the recent wars, helping to re-establish our diplomatic presence in both countries after decades. he returned to iraq during the surge, and
the standard of living for those on medicare and medicaid, rather than ask anything of the wealthiest among us. and by the way, i come from a wealthy state of delaware. i think has the highest per capita still. the wealthy in my state are as patriotic as caring as the poor. i have never seen any distinction between patriotism or generosity come from poor folk and the wealthy guy. but we are not asking anything of them. they are the only group in this entire recession we have not asked anything of. we launched two wars, one necessary, one not necessary. and on the way, the same time gave him multi-trillion dollars tax cut over the same period of time. i don't get it. and on top of maintaining the bush tax cut, and we want to maintain it for middle-class people, on top of that, and on top of what it will do to all the other benefits of seniors have, that they want to undo, the house republicans voted to repeal the health care law last week. let's not forget what that means. but they voted against. let me go back to taxes for just a second. there is the 800 billion that is set aside over here for

, sent each of us a letter with a "time" magazine cover by joel kind entitled "how to die." this article is jarring to many because it's an issue that most would rather not confront. as a result, there's a great deal of unnecessary pain, confusion and suffering. it masks one of the most important issues in health care which, despite the manufactured controversy over death panels, is a rare sweet spot in the health care debate. it can improve the quality of life, in some cases length of life, and most important, we can help people understand their circumstances and get the care that they want. if this happens, the cost of health care will go down even as satisfaction and quality goes up. for most americans, the protocols followed by almost every hopped and practitioner will be to give the maximum amount of the most aggressive care in end of life situation, especially if patients have the money or insurance, they will be hooked up in their final stages of life to be resuscitated, cracking their ribs, massaging hearts. there will be tubes inserted, chemicals will be pumped, defibrillators w
did the u.s. perg title it campus debit card trap? you guessed it. many are charged unreasonable fees that are costing them and the country millions of dollars. according to the report, 15 financial institutions have debit or prepaid card contracts with 878 campuses that serve more than nine million students. it's a big business. 42% of all students nationwide go to school on these 878 campuses. it's a lucrative business for financial institutions. there's a lot of money to be made from fees on college debit cards especially when you start charging fees on the billions of dollars disbursed each year in federal student aid. so the federal money is passing through these cards to the students, the financial institutions are making money in the process. as the u.s. perg report showed some of the fees are clearly unreasonable. one of the most egregious is a per-transaction fee on students for students for using a pin number instead of a signature. one of the largest campus debit card companies, hire one, currently charges students 50 cents every time the student enters his pin number at a
of one broken promise after another. the president told us we would be saving $2,500 per household if we passed this health care bill. the americans' health insurance premiums have increased by almost that amount, which means the president was off by a stunning $5,000 per household. and americans are pulling their pockets inside out saying, mr. president, i don't have the money to pay $5,000 more per year on my health insurance policy and of course they don't. because this has to be the crown jewel of socialism. that's what government health care is. and senior citizens realized early on, they have the most to lose by the president's health insurance policy because what they found from this bill which has been commonly called obamacare is that $575 billion will be stolen away from them out of medicare. and not only will they have $575 billion less in medicare, still looking to having to spend, senior citizens out of their pockets $200 billion more in increased taxes for medicare. that's a big loss for america's senior citizens. but it doesn't stop there, mr. speaker. millions of american
